JFK Assasination

President John F. Kennedy was shot and killed while traveling along Elm Street in Dallas, Texas on November 22, 1963. As you well know, there are several theories about who killed him. I am fascinated with this case since it still remains unsolved. Why? Who or what is trying to cover up something?

Was Jack Ruby involved? Lee Harvey Oswald was originally to blame. Was he merely a patsy? What about Joe Kennedy’s mob ties? There are so many unanswered questions. My personal theory is that the mob didn’t like that JFK wasn’t coming through on the promises Joe made to them if he was elected.

What do you think happened? Any new ideas or developments?

  1. Probably the defining mystery of our lifetime, and I doubt we’ll ever know with certainty what really happened.
    I had no idea about the Australian newspapers, as Matty mentioned. Now THAT’S fascinating!

  2. Why does everything have to be a conspiracy? I was in the 7th grade when this happened and old enough to be shaken to the core. My teacher came unglued and then I went home to the unsettling spectacle of my died in the wool Republican mother sitting there watching TV and sobbing her eyes out. It’s still hard to think about, but I realize that many many people find this fascinating.

  3. Great post!
    I am a big Kennedy buff (Jackie in particular) so I have heard and read so many different theories, some believable, some not so plausible, but all entertaining! I am convinced that Lee Harvey Oswald did not act alone, logistically it could not have been a one man operation.
    Marilyn mentioned Sam Giancana and Joe Kennedy but I have also read that JFK was having an affair with Sam Giancana’s mistress, Sandra Campbell (who was married to someone else at the time) and that Giancana had it out for JFK because of this. I have also read about theories that the members of his own government had something to do with the assasination. The government, FBI and CIA has remained so tight-lipped about it that one starts to wonder, why all the secrecy??
    I wonder how long this will remain such a mystery??

  4. I am obsessed with assassinations! I don’t know what it is, but all of them intrigue me. The JFK, Abe Lincoln, and Martin Luther King assassinations are the top three that have always caught my interest. I find them all tragic and it bugs me that we will most likely never know exactly what happened.

    As for the JFK assassination, it probably had something to do with the mob.

  5. Dick is such a fan of JFK! I’ll have to show him your post. Did you know the limo is in the Ford Museum in Detroit? When you view it, you can feel Jackie there. Not John, but Jackie.

  6. I remember that day. I was in my 2nd grade classroom when the school principal announced over the loud speaker that President Kennedy had been shot and killed. The teacher and I were the only ones who cried. All the other kids were going about their business as if nothing had happened. Like they didn’t even care.

    Years later, I read the Warren Commission findings and countless other books on the subject. There are plenty of arguments for who was behind the plot, and enough people with motive, power and resources to set the plan in motion. I can’t draw a conclusion for “who”, but based on all the known irrefutable facts, I can conclude with certainty that Oswald was not alone in this.

    Of special note is the fact, yes I said it is a known fact, that newspapers in Australia……many time zones ahead of America, had already printed the assassination of Kennedy BEFORE it actually happened. That tells me that powers high up were involved.

  7. It is interesting how well the truth has be diluted to the point we really don’t know what happened.

    Ruby was hired to remove Oswald who was to take the fall I don’t think Oswald was supposed to be taken alive.

  8. I have no idea what really happened… but I love me some Jackie O in her pink suit and hat…so glamorous.

  9. Hey Kori!
    OMG! if you ever come out here to Dallas, I’ll take you to the JKF Library where I’ve been about a half dozen times! lol We’re fascinated by it too. No way was there just one killer- I definitely believe the govt was involved. I havent heard anything lately. But I’m with you…I think Marilyn was murdered too, but that’s another story! xOxO deb

  10. Always felt that Joe got his son killed with unfulfilled promises to Giacanna….. Not sure if Oswald even had a hand in it…. I feel Ruby was an idiot acting alone for some unforseen reason.
    This is probably one of the biggest govt cover-ups ever…..
    I am not one to see conspiracy theories alot but I will make an exception here.
    Have a Wonderful Day!

  11. This is actually one of my all-time things that I would just love to know. I recently did a report on the assassination & I don’t understand why the world thinks its one shooter the Lee Harvey Oswald. From the Zubreder film you can clearly see he was shot from the front of his body, then another shot was from behind because he goes back then forward. Poor Kennedy. When I first saw the film I was shocked & dumbfounded.

    I think it was the mob on the grassy nole & Oswald was a plant to place the blame on.
